In The Name Of The Father

The great British film editor Gerry Hambling had died aged 86. Six-times Oscar nominated, an ACE Lifetime Achievement Award winner and a long-time collaborator with Alan Parker, he died in Burwell, Cambridgeshire.

Born in Croydon in 1926, Hambling started out working at Pinewood Studios in the 1950s and '60s, editing British comedies such as The Bulldog Breed and A Stitch In Time with Norman Wisdom, and as sound editor for John Huston and Joseph Losey.

It was his work with Alan Parker, though, that serves as the most eloquent testament to his talent. Beginning with 1976's Bugsy Malone and including Midnight Express, Birdy, Mississippi Burning and The Commitments, their partnership earned him three BAFTAs and five of his six Oscar nominations. The sixth nod came for his work on Jim Sheridan's In The Name Of The Father.

"He was undoubtedly one of the finest film editors that the British film industry has produced,” said Parker.

Hambling is survived by his wife and two children.
